WINSTON CELEBRATES RED RIBBON WEEK



The Winston Character Plus Committee had a busy week planning and celebrating not only Halloween but Red Ribbon Week.  The local organization of Winston students planned dress-up days, door decorating, and handed out candy all week to students who displayed the "drug-free" ribbons and stickers.  Red Ribbon Week is a Nationally recognized and celebrated week in schools from Kindergarten through High School.  Students are reminded of the dangers of drugs and other destructive decisions, and are encouraged to stay drug free.

As the week wrapped up at Winston, the Character Plus Committee organized a Trunk-or-Treat and Chili Supper.  The Trunk-or-Treat was well attended by many community children who braved frigid temperatures.  A special thank you goes out to all of the community volunteers who were willing to stand in 30 degree temps and hand out candy to our local youth.  The event couldn't have been a success without all of the volunteers.



Of course, the event culminated with everyone warming up with a Chili Supper.  Attendees enjoyed steaming bowls of Homemade Chili and fresh brownies.  The board of Education once again volunteered to serve the meal to the community.  Over 60 people enjoyed the dinner.  The Character Plus Committee and their sponsor Mrs. Pliley did an outstanding job with the whole week.  Having kids like our Character Plus Students and faculty like Mrs. Pliley are two big reasons why:  It is a Great Day to be a Redbird!

THEY BLINDED ME WITH SCIENCE!

One of the best things about a science classroom is the opportunity for hands on learning.  Science lends itself well to the idea of classroom activities, projects, and experiments.  Mr. May's Physical Science class just concluded such a project.  

2017 EGG DROP CHAMPIONS!

 The physical science class has been studying Newton's laws of motion and how they affect objects.  The unit concluded with students planning, constructing, and then testing containers designed to prevent an egg from cracking.  Students built the protective containers and then dropped the eggs from varying heights to test the effectiveness of their creations.  


The containers were dropped from varying heights up to 22 feet.  The winners, whose eggs did not crack, were Gabe Pierce, Skye Uthe, and Jakub Hisel.  Learning by doing is another reason why:  It is a Great Day to be a Redbird!
